Carb Counters - Thursday Chat 1/27

And to think.....January is almost gone. Didn't we complain when NOVEMBER was almost gone?? And then December? ARGH!!
You know, it was brought to my attention by a VERY nice person who is struggling (as am I) that we sometimes put too much pressure on ourselves. We eat stuff we're not supposed to..which leads to us feeling bad...and then we eat even more junk food. Very vicious cycle. I've decided that even though I thought the Valentines Day challenge was a good idea....I never should have joined until I KNEW I had the way I eat under control. Self Sabotage. I've also realised....I've been so busy looking at where I want to be....I forgot where I CAME from. I'm a LONG way from looking the way I did. So I've accomplished a GOOD thing. And WHEN I get to goal...I'll have accomplished a miracle :lol3: So away goes my ticker also. Mainly because I need to focus on getting things under control.
I've also decided that I'd rather have a free day on Valentines day than tomorrow (Toby Keith). So when we go out to eat tomorrow, I'm hoping to find something LC for me to eat! So that was the easy part...now it's the follow-thru that's gonna take the hardest part.
So off to remove my siggie!

:bravo: That's the way to do it Brenda! And when you go out to eat tomorrow it should be easy...I find it easy anyway when I go out to eat...unless it is Chinese :D
Made a low carb meatloaf last night...not bad. I used the new 4C bread crumbs. Didn't tell DH until after he said he really liked the meatloaf ;)
The sad part is is that I had mashed potatoes with it! DUH!
So, off to be good today. Have all my legal foods.

Good Morning ladies,
Urgh yesterday i just stayed home in bed, I have been taking Airborne for this bug I was getting , it is working great on everything about the bug but the sore achey muscles, but after resting all day yesterday I feel back to normal, still holing off on the gym for today just to make sure I am all better,but I have to say I LOVE Airborne!! Did pretty good all day yesterday stayed pretty much OP with the exception of more LC bread than I should have since I was sick all i wanted to eat was toast. But I figure for being sick and starting TOM all at the same time that is FINE!!
B- Great thought for today I think you are getting to the heart of things.
Jane- well the meat loaf part was good....next time try calitatoes they taste great!
Have a great LC day! :)

Brenda: Way to go! Great attitude. It sounds like you're making some great changes.
Jane: Glad the meatloaf turned out good. Have a great, OP day!
TG: Glad you are feeling better. You are really selling me on this Airborne. The next time I start to feel a cold coming on, I'll definitely try some.
Things here are pretty much the same: still OP, still exercising, still loving the gym! Hopefully, I can keep this up. I'm not even worried about the impending weekend. I've found it really helps me to let friends know that I am trying to lose weight and doing Atkins. They've been so helpful since I've really let them know what's going on. They just didn't understand why I wouldn't have a bite of something and kept pressuring me before. Then, I'd eventually give in, and blow the rest of the weekend. Thank goodness that problem seems to be solved!
I hope you all have a great Thursday!

TG: Sorry you didn't feel well yesterday :( Definitely hold off on the gym until this cold is completely gone!
Jina: Sounds like you are doing great! Glad you really enjoy the gym.

Jina-GREAT job!!!! and telling friends really does help! I love the gym and I love Airborne too!! ahahahahaha :)

Jane: You can resist those cravings! Chant your mantra over and over! :drill:

Jane~ you can do it.....dont give in....remember, your looking forward to getting on the scale!!
TG~ Im glad your feeling better. Ive got a second bottle of airborne in the cupboard for "just in case" That way I'll have it!!
Been an active day already, Dh didnt have to go into work today, so we went to starbucks for coffee, hit the grocery store, and picked up chicken breasts for $1.99 a lb!!! Now we are off to the "big" mall to do some walking. Id rather walk outside, but dh hates the cold. So this way I get to peek into williams sonoma and a few other cool stores they have there :D
I got some of my work out area cleaned up yesterday. I'll do the rest of it today, and get my first workout with weights in, in over a month! I promise myself I'll do this today!
Thats it around here, I hope everyone has a great afternoon

*hanging head in shame*
I won't tell you what I ate....but it wasn't legal.
Shame on me....I keep saying to myself "well I guess you just don't want it bad enough"
Oh well, I will get the hang of things eventually.

Jane: Baby steps to getting it right, remember? You can do this!! Great job on the meatloaf :) Fight those cravings!!! You can do it!! One day at a time!!
TG: Glad you're feeling better. That airborne must be a miracle drug. Is it OTC?
Jina: It's great that you have such supporting friends! I told DH he had to help me stay OP from now on...and he's like "me? No way!! I like the cheating also." GRRR
Keep up the great work!
Robin: Have fun walking and getting coffee :)
Leenie: :wave: Happy Anniversary
